|This week marks the start of the Chinese New Year. We are now entering the Year of the Pig, which, according to mythology, signifies wealth and good fortune.
The pig was the 12th animal to arrive at the Jade Emperor's party to decide the zodiac order. According to legend, the pig was late because he overslept. Extrapolating, many believe that the hidden meaning is that everyone eventually gets their share of good luck - even those who haven't worked for it. In the materials handling sector which has performed well in the past few years, some added good luck would not go astray, so let's hope some of the pig's good fortune rubs off on all of us - even the lazy!
